The Cancer There are never any ex ternal signs of Cancer until the blood is polluted and the system thoroughly con taminated by this deadly virulent poison. Then a sore or ulcer appears 011 some part of the body it may be small and harmless looking at tirst, but as the can cerous cells form a*d are deposited by the blood near the r»ore, it increases in size and severity, with sharp shooting pains. No matter how often the sore is •removed by the surgeon's knife or flesh destroying plasters, another comes and is •worse. The real disease is in the blood, and the treatment must begin there. The poisoned blood must be invigorated and purified, and when this is done cancerous cells can no longer form and the sore will Ileal naturally and permanently Mrs. Sarah M.

OA. electric light plant is a neat and roomy building containing a I'Jti-horse power engine and boilers, and a dy namo. The plant is operated by Mr. Mollcr. an expert electrician. Sup erintendent Dixon kindly consented to show us through the various buildings after which Foreman Bland took us in charge and piloted the way through the mine. The incline is l!7N feet -in length from the railroad track to bottom of coal bank. This at a depth of feet. At this point a large scale has been placed in position on which the cars of coal are weighed. The scale is nt the foot or incline and south end of main entry. There is besides the main track a 7-foot siding for empty cars at the end of which is an entry running east and west, and :»i» feet fur ther is another entry running parallel to the first. These are being opened up to some extent and rooms are now being worked. Two air shafts have been put down in the main entry which furnish plenty of wholesome air. The length of main entry, including in cline, is now feet. About forty men are now at work in the mine proper.

OFFICIAL TOTALS FROM SOME COUNTIES MAKE STATE MAJOR ITIES STILL LARGER. Grand Forks, Nov. 12.—Secretary Jewell received offiical returns yester day from a number of counties, and as a result it is now announced that the majority for McKinley in North Dakota is 15,235. Some of the figures in the table given are unofficial but, as the official returns so far re ceived have shown in each case that the actual majorities far exceeded the estimates, it is expected, that the tre mendous majority of nearly 15,300 will be increased rather than diminished. There is no longer a democratic county in the state, even Walsh, where a dem ocratic majority was reported, coming to the front with a majority of three votes for McKinley. It is- estimated that the total vote of the state will be about 55,000, against a total vote of 47,000 in 1896. McKin- ley's majority four years ago was 5.04!». his vote being 50 per cent of the total vote cast. This year the votes east by the two parties will be approx imately :.!5,umi and I'.i.smni respectively, the McKinley vote being 01 per. cent of the whole. This undoubtedly places North Dakota at the head of the list of republican states in the union. It. is estimated that the majority for Marshall will run about 2.000 be hind that for president, while Com stock is expected to have about or O.OtNt S.000 majority to his credit. THE SUPREME JUDGE DOES HE TAKE 1I1S SEAT BEFORE HE GETS HIS CERTIFICATE OF ELECTION. Grand Forks Herald: The state con stitution provides that the terms of the judges of the supreme court shan begin on the first Monday in Decem ber. The code provides that the state canvassing board shall meet and can vass the returns on the second Tues day in December. The first Monday in December this year falls on the 3rd of the month, and the second Tuesday on the eleventh. According to law, therefore, the new supreme court judge must take his seat eight flays before the fact of his election can be legally ascertained. Manifestly this cannot be done. The question arises, does Judge Bartholomew hold over tntil his successor qualifies, or is there a period of eight days during which the state will have but two supreme court judges? The question comes up in a little different form from that to which we have been accustomed as this will he the first time in the history of the state that one judge has retired at the end of his term to be succeeded by an other. Until l.S'.KS the supreme judges were re-elected, term after term. Judge Coniss resigned in the summer of IJS'.i.s, 25S 423 lflO 103 340 ,S40 153 103 100 122 137 .,000 and Judge Young was ap pointed in. his stead, and the first Mon day in December found him already in office. OLD CAVALIER. MAKES A CHANGE OF ABOUT A THOUSAND VOTES SINCE 189(5. Langdon, Nov. 12.—What happened here on Tuesday is no doubt a matter of common knowledge throughout the state by this time. Cavalier county has gone republican and the old timers are still standing in amazement watch ing the last pillars of the democratic temple in this county which came tumbling down in distorted pieces, and the wreck was so complete that it has kept the democrats busy ever since digging out the three county officers who were almost hidden in the pile of debris, and wondering how on earth even they escaped. The national ticket is in the lead with a plurality of over 300, wh'ich means a gain of 1,000 since IS'.Ki, for the reason that the Bryan electors then received over COO of a majority in this county. The state ticket was also elected here by over 200 majority for state treasurer, rolled up a majority of over 500, about 30 votes ahead of the rest of the ticket. Both Henry McLean and Ole Axvig, republican candidates to the legisla ture, are elected. McLean was con ceded to be invincible, but they did their worst to sidetrack Axvig. As the returns came in there was a con tinuous saw between Axvig, Stewart and Brecke for second place hope was almost abandoned when Stewart whs eight votes in the lead and two pre cincts to hear from, which were thought to be in favor of Brecke and would thus drop Ole down to fourth place it proved otherwise, and Axvig pulled out of the doubtful column when the last of til- returns came in with only a majority of three votes. DELAYED. WORK ON THE DEPOT. DELAYED BY LACK OF MARBLE FOR THE CONCRETE—HOTEL WORK RUSH ING. Just as the walls of the depot were rising perceptibly each day, there is a vexatious delay because of a lack of marble for the concrete. The marble comes from St. Paul, where it is being used on the state capitol, but there is 110 supply pn hand at present. It will be forwarded as soon as possible. The depot has now attained considerable proportions. The walls are well up in the air and the arches' are being raised at the ends of the building. The carpenters are at work doing what can be done while the concrete work is stopped temporarily. It is said electric light will be erected and work rushed day and night. The hotel exterior is nearly finished. The cornice has been painted and sanded and the scaffolding is coming down. Windows are being placed in the frames in the third story and in a few days the exterior will assume its finished appearance. The Kiff family must have voted at Tower City. Wooley received thirteen votes there—unlucky number. STATE ITEWS The United States petit jury sits for trial of cases at Grand Forks today. —o— The proposition to divide Ward county into throe counties was snowed under by a large vote. The Bathgate Pink Paper says the election results clearly indicate the people want to expand. —o— Superintendent of Schools Johnson was the only Ward county republican to fall by the wayside. —o— Logan county went republican by a greater majority than expected. Judge Glaspell got majority of about 150 in the county. —o At Casselton all the ladies voted tor Mrs. Davis, but* they wouldn't cast their ballots for Mrs. Eisenhuth on the state ticket. —o— Flax threshing is only about half through in many portions of the state. Even the big Dalrymple farm has a great dejil flax to thresh. One hobo is said to have created more trouble in Osnabrock—this year than all the rest of the people—in all the years there's been an Osna brock. Thieves have been stealing from the homes of farmers in Ramsey county and a full-sized vigilance committee will do business with the guilty part its—if they are caught. E. T. Burke defeated Herman Win terer in Barnes county for state's at torney, the issue being as to the advis ability of keeping the swineries closed. Burke favored such a proceeding. Under the heading, "Foiled!" the Willow City Eagle has a lurid column story cf a damnable plot to foreclose a mortgage on its plant just before the election. The plot was foiled. —o— Russell Blackwell, son of R. W. S. Blackwell of LaMoure, has been elected as assemblyman to the Elev enth district of New York—overcom ing the democratic majority of 1898 by over 800 votes. There is a tie for the office of com missioner in the third district in Ran som county. One of the candidates is constitutionally opposed to shaking dice or drawing straws, as the law provides for the settlement of tie votes. Editor Charles H. Potter of the En derlin Independent and Miss Lizzie Norris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Norris, were married early Wednesday morning at the homq of the bride's parents ait Enderlin.

A genuine Indian chief, old Meckin ock, for whom that North Dakota town was named, lives up in Roseau county, and he recently located his tepee near Badger, where he hunts skunks and bear and his squaw and papoose dig snake root. There is a large number of cases on the court docket at Lisbon, among which is the murder case against ex Chief of Police Callahan, of Enderlin, for shooting and killing his cousin, Edward O'Callighan, for alleged un due intimacy with the prisoner's wife. Public sentiment at Enderlin is much in favor of the defendant, although not, perhaps, quite so strong as direct ly after the shooting. The four pris oners awaiting trial, who broke jail a few weeks ago, are still at large. A novel contest is hooked to occur some day this week between Pat Riley of a Fargo meat market and a colored cook. Riley has a record of having picked the feathers off 05 chickens in ten minutes, and states that in a con test he can do better. The colored man thinks Riley cannot do the bus iness as quickly as he can, and has put up .$25 that he will pick more chickens than Riley or any other .man in the state. The elevator and lumber company for which William Clemens, agent at Leonard up to the time of his suicide a week ago today, have not given out any information regarding the afTairs of the agent and there is still no plaus ible reason advanced for his suicide. It is claimed that Mr. Clemens received a typewritten letter the morning of the day he suicided, which he read in the postoffice. It is surmised that this 'letter may have had some con naction •yirith the affair as it was not found in the package of letters which he carried home with htm the day of the tragedy. IJ 00 A YEAR.
